After a lengthy renovation, Michelin-starred Sante Restaurant (at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn) reopened Friday. Expect to see more natural light and “sleek, minimalist design” as well as 56 additional outdoor seats. A new lobby bar is expected in early July.
The re-opening menu is a mix of new and old dishes including poached Maine lobster, braised rhubarb duck breast, bacon-wrapped rabbit loin, Niman Ranch beef “tasting”, warm donuts and strawberry shortcake for dessert.
100 Boyes Blvd., Sonoma, open nightly from 6-9p.m., reservations at 939-2415.
